vintage treasure

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza. Organised by the very talented Tamarah, this is the second annual Extravaganza and it did not disappoint. I got myself an early-bird ticket, which meant that just 44 of us had a hour to look and buy before the general public. Here are my treasures ...





Vintage Printing Block and 4m of not very "imperfect" Liberty fabric (for $20!!)


Vintage Grape Bucket


There are still lots of treasures to be found - the Extravaganza is on today 8am to 4pm (details above). Have a lovely weekend!

Love the printing block! So wish I could have been down there earlier. Leaving for Melbourne tomorrow. Luckily I just got my coat back from the cleaners :)

Love the cactus in the teacup, and those geranium droplets. These are the times I wish I was in Melbs. Too busy writing school reports today for any fun.

Wow - superb finds!!

I looooooooooove your case, the printing block was obviously meant for you & the teacups with succulents has given me an idea for the teapots I had out the front with herbs in them which now have dead twigs in them instead.... ;)

BUT. Am I the only one in the world who doesn't get the attraction of Liberty? I am, aren't I? I'm not a fan. At all.

An extravaganza like that would have given me heart failure. I love all the goodies you came away with!
